This recipe was made in the 6 quart Instant Pot.

Reduced all the ingredients by half when making this in a 3 quart Instant Pot. The recommended fill line for rice, beans and grains in an Instant Pot is to fill the stainless insert just to the 1/2 full line and use a minimum of 1 1/2 cups of liquid in any size Instant Pot unless manual states differently.
